Mailbox Monday (68)

Another awesome week of books! Seriously, if I would have known the amazing books I'd be bringing into my home three years ago or so before I got into book blogging, well... I'm not quite sure I'd believe it. As always, I'm linking up with Mailbox Monday.

From Goodreads
Stranger Things by Erin Healy
I will admit I'm not completely sure what this one is about. But it does look like some type of thriller/mystery, so we'll see...

Purchased
Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple
I know so many people who have loved this book. Plus it's currently being turned int a movie, so if you haven't heard of it yet, you probably will soon. It's actually our book club book for the month, so hopefully it's one I'm just as found of as everyone else.

For Review from TLC Book Tours
The Idea of Him by Holly Peterson
This looks to be a chick lit type book about a woman who finds out her husband is having affair. It also looks to be from the point of view of the woman in the affair, for two takes on the same story. Maybe a slightly overdone concept, but one I'm still excited for.

From Paperback Swap
The Winter Palace by Eva Stachniak
I love historical fiction, but I'm not sure I've ever read a book about Catherine the Great. I'm hoping to change that with this book, one I've heard great things about. I believe this sequel for this came out recently as well, so if I enjoy it know there's more of the story to look forward to.

What did you find in your mailbox this week? And have you read any of my finds this week?

  11. Maybe I need to give Bernadette a second chance- I downloaded the sample on my Kindle but didn't like enough to buy, but everyone keeps talking about it!

  12. I read Bernadette ane was one of the few cranky bloggers who didn't fall in love with it. This is the second time today I've seen the Idea of him and it looks interesting, if not a little messed up and sad.
